Stardust Explores the Solar System

At 8 years old, Bailey Harris got the idea for her very first book.  While watching Cosmos:  A Space-Time Odyssey with her family, she learned that our bodies are all made up of stardust and was so excited she wanted to let other kids know.  With the help of her dad, Douglas Harris, Bailey wrote, "My Name is Stardust".  After a very successful Kickstarter campaign in 2016, Bailey's book was published in 2017 and thousands of copies have been sold.

Anyone who knows me knows I love coffee.  Ever since I was little, I wanted to drink coffee like my dad and my grandpa.  Walking down the coffee aisle at the grocery store just makes me happy.  So why I am just now getting my first coffee grinder, I don't really know.

I like this thermometer for one main reason--it's simple and easy to use. This is the third meat thermometer I've owned. The first one I had was too small to read (and I may have accidentally broke it). The next one I had was nice because it showed the different temperatures you needed to reach for each type of meat, but that also made it difficult to read.  The needle had a black and red tip.  I couldn't ever remember which one I was supposed to read.

With the Chef Remi Cooking Thermometer I can press the button that says "ON" and quickly get the temperature on a digital display.  To be honest, I just want to be able to make my family a nice dinner without giving them all salmonella or letting my toddler climb in the oven. This thermometer let's me do that.

My daughter right now is working on teeth #5 and #6.  Her first four teeth didn't give her any problems, but with these last two she will bite down on a piece of cereal or a cracker and then start screaming and pulling the pieces of food out of her mouth as quickly as she can.

For this reason, I was excited to have the chance to review the Baltic Amber Teething Necklace.  Several of my trusted mom-friends have had great results with amber necklaces, with the most common response being, "I wish I had had one of these for all my kids!"

I learned after receiving the necklace that my daycare does not allow them.  So because my daughter can only wear the necklace while she's with me I didn't see the same results that my friends did.  There was a small bit of relief, as her scream turned more into a whine, but my friends defiantly had much better results.    I contacted the person I received the necklace from and learned that the amount of time the necklace is worn does has an effect on the efficacy.

Below is my honest opinion of the product after using it in my own home.  If you are interested in purchasing this, or other products from Greenwald's, I have provided affiliate links at the end of this post.  When you purchase an item using one of my affiliate links I receive a commission for the sale, which helps support this blog.

I will admit, I am a little skeptical of environmentally friendly cleaners. It's not that I'm out to destroy the environment or anything. I'm just a little worried that I'll spend extra money and end up with a bottle of colored water. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that Greenwald's cleaners cost less than my regular cleaners, but create less waste.

Our town doesn't recycle old spray bottles, so they always end up in the trash. Greenwald's cleaners come in dissolving packets that you can use in your own spray bottles. Even though the idea of saving money and keeping plastic bottles out the landfill appealed to me, I still was a little skeptical. So I decided to put it up against the toughest cleaning job I know--my bathtub!
